Putting safe tyres on the pre-birth checklist:

3 February 2016

TyreSafe has shown that around 700,000 new babies will make their first journey home from hospital this year. Alarmingly, more than one in four of those may travel home on illegal or dangerous tyres.

Based on this, TyreSafe is launching its new website with a brand new awareness campaign aimed at pregnant women.

TyreSafe is encouraging mums-to-be to add CHECK TYRES to their pre-birth checklist in anticipation of the most important journeys they will ever make – the trips to and from hospital, before and after the arrival of a new-born baby. While the heavily-pregnant mums may not be able to carry out the checks themselves, they should ask a partner or local TyreSafe retailer to ensure their tyres’ air pressure, condition and tread depth are safe and legal.
